Does a mercruiser 470 use the same distributor as the 4.3L

Customer Question

does a mercruiser 470 use the same distributor as the 4.3L mercruiser?
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.
Customer: distributor cap is getting "chunked" out at the top. I have play in distributor shaft. Need to know if the 4.3L mercruiser uses the same distributor as the 3.7L.
JA: Is there anything else the Marine Mechanic should be aware of?
Customer: Not at this time.

Hello. My name is Tan.

No they are completely different distributors. Here is the 470. http://www.marineengine.com/parts/images/mercury/19514A2.jpg

Here is the 4.3. http://www.marineengine.com/parts/images/mercury/805185A45.jpg

Have you pulled the distributor out and inspected it?
